Make Every Day Count

“I was once told by someone that I should end each day by crossing it off(v.除去) my calendar and saying out loud, “There goes another day of my life, never to return again.” Try this for yourself, and notice how much it sharpens your focus. When you end a day with the feeling that you would have lived it the same if you had the chance to repeat it, you gain a sense of gratitude that helps you focus on what's really important to you. When you end the day with a feeling of regret or loss, you gain the awareness to try a different approach the next day”

If we're not careful, we don't notice that the days are passing us by. We take the paths of least resistance, sticking(v.粘住) within our comfort zone. We watch TV all evening rather than learn skills that will help us advance. We put up with(v.忍受,容忍) unwarranted(adj.无根据的) criticism, we passively submit to(v.屈服于) requests rather than assert our needs. We allow a lack of confidence to pass up(v.拒绝) on an opportunity.

Looking back over the past year, or even the past week, by doing things and stretching myself (v. 拓展自我,做平时不做的事) that I feel I have made the most of(v.充分利用) my days. Or as the quote says, I would live it the same way if allowed to repeat it. But, to use another cliché(n.老生常谈), life is not a rehearsal - there is no replay button. Moreover there is no erase and record again facility!

“有人曾告诉过我,当一天过去的时候,我应该从日历中把它划去然后大声的说,‘我的生命又逝去了一天,而且不会再回来了。’不妨自己也试试,然后留心下它会让我们的关注度增加多少。当一天结束的时候,你感觉如果能再有一次机会重新来一遍,你仍旧会这样度过,(如果有这种态度)那么你会抱以感激,这会帮助你专注于对你真正重要的东西。如果你带有愧疚感地过完一天,你将意识到第二天你要尝试一种不同的方式。”

如果我们不在意,我们不会留意到日子在一天天的逝去。我们选择最少阻碍的道路,固守于舒适的环境中。整晚我们看电视,而不是去学习提高自我的技艺。我们忍受毫无根据的批评,我们被动地服从指令,而不是坦言自己的需求。我们坐视信心的缺乏,拒绝机会。

回头看看过去的这些年,或者仅仅是过去的一周,对于所做的事和我所做的努力,你觉得我已经充分利用了我的时间。或者如引文所说,如果可以重复来过,我会用同样的方式度过。但是,用一个我们常挂在嘴边所说的,生命没有预演——它没有重放按钮。它同样也没有删除和记录功能。
